Jim was such a pleasure to have at our wedding. When my husband and I were shopping around for djs we were being very picky because we know how important it is to have a great dj to keep the party going. We interviewed with him and loved his personality! He totally understood our vision on having a modern/vintage wedding and played great music the entire time! He was very quick to responding to emails and extremely accommodating. I wanted to have a dance with my mother as well and he didn't even think twice about it! He also was extremely organized and made sure everyone was on the same page, even creating an itinerary for everyone involved in the wedding! He also did an AMAZING job on the father/daughter dance voice over! Everyone was talking about how sweet it was. Also, Jim kept everyone on the dance floor and made sure to involve the guests even remembering their names and calling them out which was so fun! He made my husband, myself and everyone at the wedding feel special! You can tell he loves his job and takes great pride in it. I highly recommend him to everyone!!!!!

Jim is the best!! He worked so hard, not only as our DJ but with the planning and coordinating of events as well. He is the sweetest guy you'll ever meet and knows exactly how to work the crowd. My bridesmaid was on the dance floor and he called her by her name a couple times and she turned to me and said "I can't believe he knows my name" I think that says it all!! Would definitely use him again and would recommend him to anyone!

Best DJ ever. He listened to every request and really absorbed what we wanted. I had a wedding where 50 percent of the guests were Hispanic and the other half was American and he was able to get the perfect combo of both English and Spanish music. What I liked most was his passion for music and his job as a DJ/host extraordinaire. He really understood that I was there as a bride to have fun and didn't make me work on my wedding day. He was discreet when asking about other guests requests but was also out there enough to where I didn't have to step in and run the party. It was a perfect night thanks to the perfect DJ.

I'm totally stoked with Jim and his service. He's the consummate professional and if my wedding is anywhere as great as working with him before the wedding, we're going to have a great day!

Jim is a true professional with real talent who loves his job and cares about his customers' happiness! With his extensive experience, adaptable style, enthusiam, and passion for making events a success, you can't go wrong with Jim! For my wedding, I always felt like he had a genuine interest in making my vision, goals, and requests happen whether they had to do with the overall flow of show, sequence of events, music, lighting, special effects, or making sure everyone has a good time. His goal is to meet customer needs and ensure satisfication no matter what, and he has the knowledge, skills, and abilities to do just that! You can't go wrong with "A DJ with Class."

Jim did an excellent job with the music. He played a great mix and kept things fun. He did have us make a must play list, however he didn't play much of the music from it.

When beginning the wedding planning process my, now husband, told me the most important thing to him was making sure we found the BEST DJ. From past experiences he said it would make or break the wedding. So, I set out on a mission to make sure I found THE BEST DJ. I live out of town and was in town for a quick weekend, I was given Jims contact information from another vendor of mine, gave him a call and he was willing to meet with me THAT day! He was so enthusiastic and had so many amazing suggestions for things to include on the wedding day! From ceremony music, bridal party reception entrances, and special suprises for our parents...he made suggestions that MADE our wedding! He was so professional throughout the entire process and VERY organized. He even put together an order of events for the day of the wedding which he sent out to EVERY vendor so that everyone was on the same page. Besides a short rain delay, the entire day/night ran without a flaw. We have gotten countless compliments on our DJ and how he made our wedding! He was so entertaining and kept the crowd going (the dance floor was NEVER empty). We also used the uplighting which made the reception that much more beautiful and unique! I would reccomend him to anyone! He will not only be your DJ but he becomes a friend and treats you that way. USE HIM...you will NOT regret it!

Jim was such a pleasure to work with! Since my wedding was a destination I did not know much about music in the area... Jim eased all of my concerns! I would highly recommend a dj with class!

Jim is amazing at what he does. He was very organized with everything. His checklist is genius and no one will bother you on what's next on your special day because he has it all. He played requests and even helped do a customized dance for my father and I. He had all my guests on the dance floor the whole time! He was able to answer any questions I had leading up to the wedding even with his busy schedule. :)
Satisfied bride. Married 4-14-12

You will never find another DJ as amazing and wonderful as Jim with a DJ with Class. Right from the start he helped me to mold my reception so that it would be the best wedding my guests had ever been to, and he did a GREAT job in doing just that! Everyone was out there dancing, and I mean everyone!! It was such a good feeling knowing your friends and family were having an awesome time. DON'T skimp on your DJ! Pick Jim!!

Jim is a true professional. From the beginning we could not have been more satisfied. No only did he call right away but met with us at our reception location during one of our visits. He offered so many services that made our wedding even better than we could have done on our own. Jim took our monogram and made it the central theme of the reception. Our guests were talking about it all night. He spent time with us at our reception location to select the right uplighting color to complement our decor. We really appreciated the full service and constant communication. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking for DJ services in Southwest Florida!

My husband I were recently married at the Pink Shell Beach Resort and Spa in Fort Myers Beach. From the first conversation with Jim I knew we would be selecting him as our DJ and MC. During that first conversation Jim listened with intent as we talked. He genuinely sounded interested in getting to know all about us as a couple. Through this conversation Jim gained an understanding of who we were and of our vision of how we wanted the music to be at the wedding.
In the months preceding this conversation my husband and I met with Jim in person. Although I was sold on Jim, my husband was still a skeptic about if a DJ was a good investment. When we met Jim my husband asked Jim many questions about DJ’ing , and just as I knew from my previous conversations with Jim, he had all the answers. Jim is truly an expert in his field and he is well studied in his craft. Albert, was ultimately won over though when Jim gave us previews of the music he would play based on our descriptions, Jim was spot on.
Leading up to the wedding, Jim kept us on track with getting us prepared for our wedding day. He reminded us of our different options for songs, he thoroughly explained the process of creating playlists and filling out the necessary forms, and Jim created a detailed timeline that put my mind at ease. The wedding day, thanks to Jim’s coordination flowed like clockwork. The music was perfectly timed and every song he played fit the atmosphere of the party. Needless to say the dance floor was packed all night. We loved that Jim was so flexible throughout the night he was able to honor our requests, take guests requests, and play songs that helped transition from one song to the next.
Another benefit to working with Jim is that he offers so many ways to customize your wedding and to truly make it yours. At our wedding we were fortunate enough to have the red up lights. They are absolutely stunning and really add an ambiance to the room. When I walked into the reception and saw the up lighting that Jim had set up in the room I began to cry, it was magnificent and completely transformed the ballroom into a warm and romantic space. Jim also offers the wedding hotline, which allows for personal messages to be played; it definitely is a way to make your wedding unique.
I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Jim. My family and friends loved working with him too. Jim’s endearing personality allows him to make connections with everyone he meets. This helped make our guests feel welcomed and comfortable. I also appreciated his responsiveness to questions and concerns. This allowed me to rest assured that Jim would take care of everything. To any newly engaged couples who are planning a wedding I highly recommend Jim without reservations, he is truly the best of the best.

What a fun time everyone had! Jim Dalia truly kept everyone out on the dance floor! From the ceremony to the reception all the music was well played, and the night just seemed to float along. Everyone had such a fun time, especially the kids when Jim played songs just for them. Our reception room looked wonderful with all the purple up-lights as well which added such a nice touch. Thank you Jim!! You truly are "A DJ With Class". 12-10-11

I loved Jim Dalia, he is a true entertainer. He made everyone have the best night of their lives. It was non stop dancing for over 3 hours. No one sat down. That is what I call a wedding. I think Jim is a great person professionally and personally, he truly cares for his brides.

Jim is great! He is the best DJ out there. He is very professional and treats you like an old family friend. He was able to provide up-lighting for our reception and it really pulled the room together. He makes sure the volume of the music is alright for all of the guests. He had a couple of special surprises during the wedding which were so great. I would hire him again.

Jim did a great job organizing our ceremony and reception. He also kept our party going long into the night. Our guests told us over and over again how much fun they had at the reception. Musics choices were great!

Jim Dalia provides the ultimate in lighting, music and all of those "extra's" that make a wedding personal and special. He is worth every penny and will do absolutely anything to ensure that you are happy with his work. He is a pleasure to work with and I completely recommend. My husband and I had numerous special requests for him and he accommodated all of these and provided a very memorable reception with a packed dance floor!

I had originally intended to go with a different DJ, but there were some communication issues (or lack there of). I met Jim at a bridal show and decided to meet with him. Not only did he agree to meet us at our house (very convenient), but he immediately made us feel at ease. Jim has a great personality and an obvious love for what he does. He stayed with us through every step and was always prompt with returning phone calls or emails. The entire wedding from pre-ceremony to the end of the reception was done beautifully! We had so much fun dancing the night away at the reception, and he played great music...some of what I requested and some he based off what he knew of us...and did it right! Not only was the music spectacular, but the uplighting in the ballroom looked absolutely amazing! I am so happy we decided to go with the uplighting like Jim suggested.
All in all, great guy, great music, great atmosphere, and great communication. The DJ makes or breaks the reception, and Jim made ours amazing!
